Chickpea Vegetable Soup (Vegan, Gluten Free)

It has been seriously cold here this week in Dallas.  So this Chickpea Vegetable Soup was in order.  This Chickpea Vegetable Soup is super easy to make.

You can make this healthy soup in your crock pot, or on the stove.  Either way works great.  This healthy vegetable soup came about when I discovered my peppers and tomatoes were starting to look a little wrinkled and soft.

I wanted to use them up so I made this soup.  I hope you enjoy it.  If you like soups as well you may enjoy this post.


Vegetable Soup - My Whole Food Life


I added the chickpeas to make this vegetable soup a complete meal.  I also had tons of chickpeas to use up so they were perfect.  This soup makes a large amount and freezes well.

You can freeze in serving sized containers for easy grab and go meals.  I topped mine with avocado because avocado makes everything better. 🙂

Roasted Red Pepper Soup (Vegan, Gluten Free)

I am a big fan of soup recipes this time of year.  This Roasted Red Pepper Soup is the latest one.   This roasted red pepper soup is another one of my husband, Marcus’s creations.  He is also the mastermind behind the Peanut Noodle Stir Fry and then Slow Cooker Ratatouille Soup.

This healthy soup recipe is very easy to make.  The roasting adds a deeper level of flavor to this healthy soup recipe.

I have a new slow cooker recipe for you!  This time it’s slow cooker ratatouille soup.  One can never have too many soup recipes right?  Especially when they are healthy soup recipes.  Even better if they are slow cooker recipes.  This slow cooker ratatouille soup will not disappoint.  It’s loaded with flavor.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

If you wanted to add more protein to this soup, I could see white beans or kidney beans going real well in here.  This soup is great on it’s own though.  Plus the house will smell amazing!  Unlike most soup recipes, this one contains no broth.  Most of the vegetables release so much water in the cooking process, that there was no need for broth.  This recipes makes a very large amount of soup.  It’s quite budget friendly.  I store mine in serving sized containers in the freezer for easy meals on those busy days.

Creamy Cauliflower Potato Soup (Vegan)

Creamy Cauliflower Potato Soup.  Cauliflower is just one of those things I don’t do enough with.  It is so healthy and I really want to try and incorporate more into my diet.

One of my favorite things to make with cauliflower is cauliflower popcorn.  Now was about time to make a cauliflower soup.  The cauliflower adds a nice creamy texture without adding a lot of calories.

White Bean Chili (Vegan and Gluten Free)

White Bean Chili.  I have been wanting to do a slow cooker bean chili for quite some time.  Problem is, I wasn’t sure how to make a white bean chili.  So naturally, I ask my husband who is the chili expert in the house.

He also created the delicious sweet potato chili that is already on the blog.  I was very pleased with his recipe for this white bean vegan chili as well.  This white bean chili recipe is so simple and it can be made in the crock pot when you are not even home!  To me, those are the best kinds of recipes. 🙂
